The Winslow Incident (Five Star Mystery Series) [Hardcover]

I've finished "The Winslow Incident" by Elizabeth Voss.

Product Description

What would you do if everyone around you went instantly, inexplicably mad?

Welcome to Winslow, Washington, where all anyone expects is another ordinary summer: tourists taking the ghost town tour, locals cooling off in Ruby Creek, the carnival in Prospect Park. Nothing unusual. That's because residents here have always done well at keeping order, keeping secrets and keeping the past buried.

Until now.

First, the animals go strange. Then townsfolk begin losing their minds. And that's when the ghosts come out to haunt.

Inspired by true events. Set in a small town hidden in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The Winslow Incident -- a present-day thriller informed by historical accounts of entire villages gone mad. What triggered the mass hysteria of the Salem witch trials? Why did residents of Pont-Saint-Esprit suddenly lose their minds?

And how does it feel to be the last sane person in town?

My Review:

The book opens during the summer of 2010 with Pard Winslow's cows acting strange and dying mysteriously in Winslow, Washington.  Hazel Winslow his seventeen year old niece is very worried and threatens to expose his tainted meat.  He threatens her back that he will expose her own secret of what happened to the local baker Hawkin Rhone five years ago which will put her boyfriend Sean Adair in jail.

Soon after it seems what happened to the cows has spread to the humans and then they turn insane.  The bloodshed gets more violent and bloody!

I loved how Elizabeth was able to incorporate true accounts into this book which pulls your attention with great characterization and description of the location.


Thanks Elizabeth for sending me your book to review, greatly appreciated!
